Sinus infection after being exposed to bleach cleaning agent. Should I be worried?

A couple of days ago my dog urinated on my inclosed patio. I cleaned it up with bleach and it started to bubble. I immediately closed the entrance into the residence and opened the door leading outside so the room could ventilate. After being exposed I have had symtoms like a horrible sinus infection. I don t know if I should go to the Doctor or if it will just go away. Can you help?

Hi,

Sinusitis is a troublesome infection. Most of the times, it requires antibiotics.

In my suggestion, it would be wise of you to go to the doctor.

Meanwhile do steam inhalation thrice daily so that you get better soon.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
